GRILLED ITALIAN SAUSAGE BURGERS (for four)
1 pound hot Italian sausage, casings removed
8 ounces ground pork
3 garlic cloves, pressed
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning, commercial or home made, crumbled
¼ cup minced drained oil-packed sun dried tomatoes
¼ cup mayonnaise
four ½ inch thick onion slices
1 large red bell pepper, quartered lengthwise
four ¼ inch thick slices provolone cheese
4 onion rolls, cut horizontally in half
1. Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Season with pepper. Divide mixture into quarters. Shape each into a ¾ inch thick patty. Mix tomatoes and mayonnaise in a small bowl to blend. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover patties and tomato mayonnaise separately and chill).
2. Prepare grill for cooking and grill burgers, onions and peppers until burgers are cooked through and onions and peppers are lightly charred, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes. Move peppers and onions to cool side of grill.
3. Top burgers with cheese. Place rolls on grill cut side down. Cover with lid and cook until cheese melts and buns are heated through, about 2 minutes.
4. Transfer buns to plates. Spread ¾ tablespoon mayonnaise mixture over each bun half. Top with burger, then bell pepper and onion. Cover with top half of buns and serve.
